    Re: Another Blood Test with an Abnormality

    I had a letter through the post today from the doctors, It said that my ESR levels are improving but still raised and a slight rise in my White Blood Cell Count.

    This is really nothing to worry about. I have had borderline or slightly raised readings before and it certainly hasn't killed me.

    Glad it's at least improving.

    It's just strange how on my last 3-4 blood tests i constantly have something like ESR or White Blood Cell Count that is raised.

    I did tell you that raised white blood count can be caused by STRESS ....You didnt take any notice tho . You have been stressing a lot lately havent you ? It takes its toll on the physical as well as the mental well being of the individual ..Sue x

    Blimey honey, you'll have no blood left soon, and that'll be a real worry!

    Hope things go well.

    Raised white blood cells usually indicate that you have an infection within your body. Your body raises its white blood cells to fight off infections. This is their purpose. I have had this happen on occassion and the doctor will just keep repeating your blood tests until they come back clear. It is probably a simple water infection.

    In the last 3 blood tests i have had over the past 9-10 weeks these have been the results:-

    Blood Test #1:- Raised WBC.

    Blood Test #2:- Raised ESR (Not sure if WBC was raised in that one.)

    Blood Test #3:- Raised WBC & ESR.

    Just had my blood test, It was to check B12, Folate, Coeliac Disease and CRP.

    I have to have another full blood count done next week as well to check my ESR and WBC levels again. :(
